Thanks. Maybe it will make a trip your way this fall. Thinking hard on the D2R2 and the Rose Mountain Rumble in MA and NH. Skipping the Hampshire 100 NUE Mountain race this year so looking forward to something new and fun out East!

The clock for build pics is now ticking. It took 6 months for pics of mine to get posted and that was from others who photographed it at NAHBS.

Good luck and keep us posted (with pics) !

I can fairly say both Yes and No.

Yes. Received.

But No, not holding out as it remains in box. Too much backstory to explain on that note...

I wanted to post good pics of the "official" unboxing but that unfortunately is probably going to be a few more weeks. Since you asked though, I do have one "unofficial" unboxing photo from the night I received it a couple of weeks ago. Not a very good photo but it is a start.

Really excited to build and hit the trails but unfortunately waiting on a couple of things that I should not be at this point. Thanks for prodding me a bit as I could use the distraction of some bike time right now...

After far too long, the key part I was waiting on to move forward finally arrived this week. Finally moving forward! Excited to get this on the "road" for fall!

Threw it up on the stand for a quick pic after assembling parts and testing for the biggest rubber this will fit while still being built around a 150mm Q-factor.

The frame was built for the Bruce Gordon Rock-n-Road Tire and easily fits the 700x43c tire with great room, but look likes the frame still has good clearance for up to a 29 x 1.9 like this Bontrager Team Issue 29-0 tire. I think it measures at 46mm with a caliper IIRC. So long as my high clamp bottom pull FD clears the tire when engaged, I will likely give these a try for some dirt riding as they have more volume and are much lighter than the R-n-Rs.

king pal, I know your frame can fit bigger tires but perhaps when you get the chance, do give the BB RnR a try, I have it on my gravel bike and it's really quite good.

Bruce Gordon RnR I presume?

Good Call. The tires seen in pics here were actually just a test and I was surprised that while the frame cleared them fine, the new mini-type II fork actually has less clearance than the frame.

This frame set was actually specifically built around 3 things:
- Bruce Gordon 700x43c Rock-n-Road Tires
- White Industries VBC Road Cranks with 28/42 chainrings
- Paul Post Mount Racers

This has been rescheduled as a winter project as I have been on the Eriksen RCR all year but is currently on the stand with some progress.

Will update with pics!

Slowly moving forward.

May have to take off the RnRs and test it with the hakkapeliitta 240s, with winter here.
